RtI in Middle and High School
Preparing All Students for Success
While RtI has been demonstrated as an effective tool at all levels, there are real differences in the needs of middle and high school students and the way they respond to interventions. At times, academic problems don’t surface until middle grades when the curriculum becomes more challenging, and students who have been previously successful in learning to read are at-risk of failing. The structure of the school day and extra-curricular activities also pose challenges to the RtI Model. To address these issues, Classworks has developed a model that is tailored to the specific needs of middle and high school students.
Through the “Preparing All Students for Success” (PASS) model, Classworks focuses on prevention and successfully helps middle and secondary students meet their challenges. The PASS model identifies students in need of additional support, meets them where they are academically, and accelerates learning so all students can successfully graduate with their peers.
The PASS model provides a research-proven path to successful graduation through:
- Early identification of students at-risk of dropping out of school
- Addressing issues in elementary and middle “feeder schools”
- Formative assessment for sound instructional decision-making
- Intervention through individualized, differentiated instruction
- Consistent focus on building the foundation for future learning
- Targeted, accelerated instruction moving students toward proficiency
- Student engagement and active participation in learning
- An academy approach to ease the transition from middle school to high school
- Success in gateway courses – English I, Algebra I, Geometry
- Advancement through critical milestones – exit exams, end-of-course tests
